Talented team with potential for much higher scores. Rider tends to go to her hand to prepare for transitions, changes of bend, etc rather than using subtle half halts using seat and leg aids. As a result, horse is very busy in the connection trying to find the bit when rider gets busy. Try to shorten your reins, push your hands more forward and use core for half halts with rein aids much more quietly and subtly. Remember, your horse can not hit a moving target so, if the bit isn't steady, he flails around looking for it.
